  • tsp of salt

  • 250g/9oz easy-cook polenta

  • 50g/2 oz butter

  • 50g/2 oz grated parmesan cheese

  • freshly ground black pepper

  • 8 sausages, cooked


  • 1.

    Bring the water to a boil in a large pan, and add the salt.

  • 2.

    Place the polenta grains in a jug and pour slowly into the boiling water. Use a long-handled wooden spoon to stir constantly.

  • 3.

    Stir until all the polenta has been incorporated and there are no lumps.

  • 4.

    Add the butter and parmesan, and season with pepper.

  • 5.

    Simmer, stirring constantly until you have cooked the polenta for up to five minutes (the polenta is usually ready after one minute but will still be soft - it firms up with more cooking).
